Basically, I have heard 12:00aM- 6:00AM is amrit Vela, but I also heard it's the last "pehr" of the night before sunrise, so 3-6:00AM. When exactly is it? And yes, anytime you do paath is amrit vela, I have heard that too, but I know there are very specifics verses from SGGS indicating as waking up early in the morning. I am confused about the exact timing?

Amrit Vela begins when the sun is 30 degrees below the horizon and ends when the sun rises, so last pehr of the night is correct. Rise in the Amrit Vela doesn't mean stay up all night. It means rise early, before the sun. This time of day is the clearest, sweetest, most powerful time of the day to do your daily sadhana.

BTW, why did you put the word Ishnaan in quotes?

Thanks and no particular reason. I guess I just did it ishnaan in punjabi meaning taking bath/shower. No reasons really.
